Avatar m tn how long w/d's last really varies from person to person. morphine was the 1st drug i ever got w/d's from back in 77. back then it was just a couple of days. now at this age, it would be more like 10 days. maybe more. laurel's advice is just what you need. good luck. let us know how you make out.

654183 tn?1225312636 Thanks everyone. I had a long talk with him last night and let him know he will never be clean unless he starts with the whole truth. He told me that he is in fact using needles between his fingers and sometimes arms. He said he does also use the needle to squeeze the liquid morphine in his mouth, he claims that he uses a cotton ball to soak it up from the spoon and then uses the needle to get it out of the cotton.
Avatar f tn I tapered down over a 3 week period, removing 1/2 tab each week until Christmas morning when I took my last 1/2 pill. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me from their experience how long the withdrawal symptoms last? It's my 14th day off the morphine (still on the vicodin for back pain after 2 surgeries), but I still feel pretty awful. I have headaches, nerve/cramping pain in my legs, tired, sick to my stomach, achy, etc.
Avatar m tn ) I don't know how I can do this. Has anyone any suggestions? I am a 59 year old male and I am really frightened of the power this drug has over me and over my emotional well being:( One day later: ...after seeing my doctor and asking him for more morphine at a lower doseage he has given me 10 mg tablets of morphine...I am trying to do this my way. Honestly, my doctor doesn't seem concerned about it...but I am...Am I doing this the right way?..

Avatar f tn Im scared to death and I need to know how long will these witdrawal symptoms last? Is anyone else doubled over in pain and have blood in stool?? I am new to this site and not real good at navigating it yet. Forgive me if you have already answered these questions. I have not been able to find all the answers and i am stuck with just a dial up modem. Any help would be much appreciated.
Avatar m tn How long?? 'Till death do you part! Hate to say it , but it's a battle to the end. It gets easier as time goes by, though.
Avatar m tn My question is, did you taper? Also, exactly how long did your withdrawal symptoms last? I feel like this is lasting forever!! I know that it will get better and I will normal again I would just like to know when?? I will fight this demon, I will keep strong.
Avatar n tn how long do these withdrawals last if I'm on day 14 and was throwing up today and still feel all those symptons they say happens to you? i stopped cold turkey and i just want to know when all the pain will go away.
Avatar m tn Maybe some ativan and a more understanding DR? how do i know when I am not going to be any better and I should resign myself to long term pain management therapy. Meds and such. Is 12.5 mcg fentynal comparable to 2 norcos a day? that seems pretty low. is that correct? How do i get the DR to prescribe a benzo like described above? He seems in sensitive to the mind hormonal stresses that go along with all this ****. I suggested Ultram today, he said that is drug seeking behavior!
Avatar n tn for any CII script filled, so the most you could fill at one time was 100 tablets, capsules, patches, etc., but no restriction on how long that had to last - you could fill one every day if the situation required it. The question of upper dose is nearly always up to the judgement of the prescriber. There are often administrative limits by insurance or whoever is paying (e.g., Medicare), though those most often are aimed at controlling costs more than they are concerned with therapeutic value.
Avatar f tn will i experience withdrawal symptoms? i know that no one can say for sure, but there must be someone out there who can speak to this situation that i am in. i am frightened, or more appropriately, i have a sense of dread about having to go through withdrawal on top of all of the other health problems that i have right now. in may of last year i was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and in feb of this year i was diagnosed with crohn's.
Avatar n tn 5 mg in the morning and at night i dont want to take these anymore so i decided to go cold turkey here i am on day two and i feel like crap no vomiting but i am nausus i get lightheaded i should have never started taking these i hate it sometimes im not sure if it is withdrawls or if it is actually anxiety ive delt with anxiety my whole life and never took pills and the stories i am reading are scaring me even more does any one know how long these symptoms last hopefully no more than a week caus
Avatar f tn I'm not an expert here but I know that 4mg of Methadone is not very much. How do you feel? You sound great but I know you must be nervous about this. I do know that you'll experience some withdrawal no matter which way you go. If this were me,I'd stay with the Methadone and continue to taper off. We have a CL on the forum,Gnarly1. He'll see your post and reply. He has quite a bit of experience with Methadone and withdrawal and he can advise and explain.
1794671 tn?1338798991 So I think I am making a pretty good choice here to taper down to 3 or 4 then stopping 2 weeks before the baby is born, but I was just making an insight because it says they siffer 4 weeks of pain and other sites say 3 - 4 days. And I was wondering how a NICU nurse knows they go through 4 weeks of withdrawal? Do the babies stay in the NICU until the withdrawal symptoms go away? Or do mothers take them home... I also heard that SIDS is more likely to happen to those born with NAS?
Avatar n tn how do I take these drugs with me? Do they have to be in their prescription bottles? Do I take them in my carryon? Somehow I feel with all the help I have gotten here I can do this! Took my first one this morning (seems to take away the jitters) so if I am going to have 6, tha means the next is at... 9 AM, 12 PM, 3 PM, 6 PM, 9PM hmm, that's it. Re: navigating this site, how do I get to this thread from the login?
Avatar f tn The good news is that is this is day 3 you should be almost done with the physical withdrawal from the Morphine. Please, be very very careful with the Valium.
Avatar n tn Sudden cessation of alcohol after drinking that much can be, and very frequently is, fatal. You really should taper down by, say, a couple of ounces a day. I hope you read this before you do real damage to yourself.
Avatar n tn Am I kidding myself and just an addict with regular withdrawal symptoms? Is it possible to use morphine regularly and NOT be an addict. I certainly don't feel like one.
1655240 tn?1302042430 I am having quite a lot of symptoms of w/drawel. How long does it last to get thru it. I am 50, disabled and poor.
